Bowtech Products Ltd has released the Pioneer multipurpose underwater camera with LEDs.
The Bowtech Products Pioneer is a high resolution underwater colour CCD camera with six integral high intensity LEDs. It provides a cost effective solution to general underwater viewing observation, down to 4000 m ocean depth.
Measuring only 53 mm diameter and 78.8 mm in length (excl. connector), the camera is ideally suited to observation of tooling and manipulator tasks. The fully controllable integral LEDs remove the requirement for separate lights where space is restricted.
The camera is enclosed within a high quality titanium housing, rated to 4000 m operating depth. The camera is fitted with a fixed focus wide angle lens, giving a 57° diagonal angle of view in water through a sapphire window which is highly scratch resistant and 99.8% optically pure. The camera features in-built reverse polarity protection.
The miniature, high specification 1/3 in. sensor offers 720TVL high resolution and excellent low light level sensitivity.
The Pioneer is also available as a monochrome version with improved low light level sensitivity.
